Labels keep drifting to the right side. I am using 30374 appointment/business cards. Is there a fix or is there a better machine made just for this size card.

Hi I am trying to print labels. Avery #05161 and business cards Avery8371TM or 5371TM. I am using Microsoft Office and there do not seem to be any relevant numbers. I have gone under labels. Help Thanks

You can use a different template for either the labels or the business cards, just make sure the labels you choose are the same size as the avery 05161 & the business cards are the same paper eg: glossy etc. The other thing you can do is go to & download the correct templates.

I hope this helps you

When my labels print they sometimes drift and part of the verbage is truncated. How can I keep this from happening

There's an adjustable label guide that slides back and forth up against the labels as they feed from the roll. Make sure the guide is up against the labels. (But not too tight) I believe it a purple colored guide.

Out of paper error in Zebra 110XiIII plus

There is a small thumb screw under the paper guide that has an adjustable stop to hold the paper. If you load it correctly, you should have one on each side to guide the paper into the printer. Also, the machine has either a roller or a bar to hang the labels on, correct? The bar has an adjustable stop to keep the roll from moving around while you print. You may want to setup the media sensor about 1 cm from the left of the printer to make it less subject to this type of error. They come from the factory very close to the edge of the paper to allow for some card printers to work well out of the box. Most people use labels and this is not necessary. I hope I have given you some helpful information.

Polyester labels from tray 1 4 labels per sheet right side color

It says on the website the labels are 56lb (I guess cover weight). The only way the stock will run right (ie) fuse correctly is in the mp tray using one of the thicker settings. Also if you run labels out of the tray you run the risk of them peeling off making the turn out of the tray and into the machine. All non standard paper is better off using the mp tray.

T5000 Thermal Printer

There are two guides on that machine.

One guide will make sure that the media is locked down and secured. if it isn't it will cause drifting.

There is also another guide around the thermal head before printing that guides the labels before it prints. It either white or or it could be a green color.

are you using the takeup roller on the printer to hold the wax paper? If you are is it straight on the take up roller?

Twin Turbo pushing out a lot of unprinted labels

The people at Dymo's tech support (1-203-588-2500), told me that the problem is a dirty sensor. If you open the front face of the machine (the part with the words "Dymo Labelwriter Twin Turbo" on it), on the inside (top) you will see the black rollers and a peice that is on top of the roller that is the same color as the face you just removed. That peice can be lifted and underneath it you will see an orange transparent peice. This is the sensor. To clean it, you can either use the cleaner sheets that came with the printer or a business card. You will need to put enough alcohol to make the card damp (but not soaked) and run it through as if it were a label 10 times. This should clean your sensor so that it is able to clearly tell when to stop feeding.

It sounds complicated, but its really not. I hope this helps somebody!!!

Empty light

The label sensor on the 3400 is in the hinged area where a metal plate swings down to make loading labels easier. The sensor can't be adjusted left or right like some other Intermec models, so it's critical that the labels be snug to the left side (as viewed from the front) so the sensor can read the leading and trailing edges of the labels.

There is a small "Guide" in the slot of the plate that should keep the labels in position. Use the thumbscrew beneath the plate to adjust the guide so that the labels are snug but you can still pull the labels without much effort (with the head open). This almost always fixes the problem. If the guide and tumbscrew are missing, look in the bottom of the printer for the pieces, including the washer.

Close the head, hit the Feed button a few times, and labels should feed consistantly (the feeds should probably move the label to the start of the printhead and then to the tear bar).
If the labels still don't feed, be aware that the same light is used to show that the ribbon is out. If you use direct thermal printing (without a ribbon), check the bottom switch on the back is set toward "DT" and then turn the printer off and on to read the switches.
